DD occasionally has trouble sleeping. 11:00 last night and she comes out and says she can't sleep. Not a problem I said. Stay up as late as you want and clean your room or their is a pile of laundry that needs folding. An 8 year old doesn't need that much sleep, right? Fifteen minutes later she was in bed, light off, sound asleep.

She takes after SWMBO who will stay up and watch a movie (through closed eyelids) rather than go to bed because she is afraid she will miss something.

Not my choice of sections, but I'll look after Champagne, French/German/Italian Wine and Coolers. Also got an alarm passcode. All helps me get settled in.

Change is tough... It’ll pick up quickly once they figure out that you can handle anything they throw at you (‘cause then they’ll start throwing everything your way). Hang in there; sounds like they're starting to figure it out.

After that she was in our bed two weeks straight. It got better for a time but now the pattern of them has gotten to where it is now.

I'm definitely going to talk to both of them and see what is bringing them down. I will also do the, "You're a big kid, you don't need to do this anymore." speech. That worked with a few issues when they turned 4.
That ‘splains how you got there. I like your plan.
It’s a good starting point and may well be all that’s needed.

Nicely handled.
Most young’ens are allergic to “work”; making it an easily exploited weakness.

Happy Friday gang. Snow is still coming down, office is closed. Working from home was a pain so I walked 2 doors down to my cousin's house. Peace and quiet here. It's nice.
